Real Changes or Chameleon Changes?

“At some point you realize that most of your daily battles are really battles within yourself, and it’s the desire to win that ever leads you away from discovering who you really are.

“It’s in winning that we really lose, losing the chance to know ourselves. It’s in losing that we win the opportunity to know who we really are, without illusions before God.

“Should we not seek to change ourselves? No. Seek not so much that you might change who you are. Seek that you might be changed from your pretenses into who you really are.

“We change not because we seek to attain something greater, but because we are led by something greater into something greater.”

Brother Nicholas Reynolds
